[Global Times in the United States special correspondent Xie Chao newspaper special correspondent chapter] a year ago, then U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates during his visit to China, China’s first stealth openly on the Internet fighter F -20, causing widespread speculation in the West. Today, U.S. Defense Secretary Panetta’s first China trip also encountered the same coincidence: second resolution photos of the stealth fighter exposure. Russian media marvel that China is “the world’s only two fifth-generation fighter development program countries, the West is this mysterious fighter number, performance, future use of full-guess analysis even think that it might become the Chinese version of the carrier-based F-35 fighter.
the United States, “Defense News” reported on the 19th, entitled “Panetta during his visit to China, China opened another veil of the stealth fighter.” Reported that Panetta’s visit to China, code-named China’s new stealth fighter F -21 F -31 photos appeared in China’s military blog, after the first photos of the F -20 fighter also happens to appear in Gates January 2011 during a visit to China. The U.S. AOL Web site of the same association: “Last year, when he was U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates last visit to China, the PLA F -20 stealth fighter flick mysterious veil, the current Defense Secretary Panetta’s visit to China this year, he was greeted is called F of -21 or F -31 the second stealth fighter. The report quoted the U.S. National Defense University, director of the Research Center of Chinese military affairs Sanders as saying that the PLA “scale is getting smaller and smaller, but more and more advanced. The United States, “Connection” magazine website on the 16th, “The Chinese government intends to take advantage of the disclosure photo to show off their own progress in the field of military research and development.
the rapid development of Chinese stealth fighter Contrary to external expectation. “Voice of Russia” 20 references Vasily Kashin, Russian Air Force experts saying that, the F -21 existence, China will be the only two fifth-generation fighter development program countries in the world. He said the United States and Russia can not afford a similar ambitious plan, the EU and even failed to decide whether to develop a fifth-generation fighter.
West are most concerned about the future use of this new Chinese stealth fighter is quite different, but they guess. “Defense News” said that the International Assessment and Strategy Center, a China expert Fisher The new exposure stealth fighter nose numbered 31001, means that this fighter codenamed the F -31. Project 2049 Institute of the Chinese Air Force analysts Roger Cliff that fact, before the so-called F -31 F -21 media speculation. Cliff Judging from the photos, the F -21 than -20 F volume smaller, and there is no canard. “Defense News” speculation, perhaps -20 F and F -21 and the U.S. F-22 and F-35 a similar level with the large F -20 to attack better performance, while the smaller F -21 perhaps more Suitable fight for air supremacy. Reported that the Air Force fighter level with precedents in China: “The larger the F-11B aircraft is a multi-role fighter, China’s self-developed F -10 medium fighter for air-to-air combat. The report also speculated that this new aircraft will probably be used for export. “This could explain why the Chinese aircraft placed in such a prominent location, easy for people to understand it. But Cliff of this may be expressed doubts about the future has not been occupied by the F-35 fifth-generation fighter overseas markets may not exist.
Russian RT website reported on the 18th, raised another possibility — The new fighter will be mounted on the aircraft carrier. The reports follow the previous spread of the Internet the aircraft number, “F-60″, claimed that various signs that such aircraft may be used for future Chinese aircraft carrier may eventually become “the Chinese version of the F-35 fighter. Reported that the double roll vertical tail of the F-60 and DIS inlet so that it and the U.S. Lockheed Martin F-35 looks somewhat similar, and uses the same internal design of tank ammunition, to reduce enemy found that the probability of radar. Reported that the F-60 and F -20 may not Western guess is a competitive relationship, because they have completely different purposes. Reported speculation that the Chinese navy to prepare for “Varyag” aircraft carrier with F -15 fighter, the Su-33 is designed in the 1980s imitation model, is now outdated, F-60 will be the future of the Chinese Navy The main carrier-based aircraft. F-60 wheeled nose landing gear also imply that this aircraft will be used for the Navy fighter landing gear when taking off and landing on the aircraft carrier will withstand greater impact, such as the French Rafale, Super Hornet and Russia Su -33 carrier aircraft are dual front wheel design.
“Voice of Russia” believes that China is still lack of key technologies required — modern manufacture of fifth generation fighter aviation engine. The report also has two kinds of fifth-generation fighter is definitely worth proud, but do not rule out their tests as well as a long time to solve the lack of need even need foreign aid. Russian media that the outside world should these two stealth fighters as a showcase of China’s own technology, the Chinese Air Force combat capability depends on further improve already begun series production of the fourth-generation fighter. ▲
